This could be a couple things since it's an external HDD. Here's what I would try:

  1. Try another port
  2. Try another cable
  3. Remove the drive from the external case and plug it in to the MAC directly if possible. If not possible, get another external case for it (they're not expensive these days)
  4. If you still do not get the drive to come up after that, then you might want to give SpinRite a try. http://www.grc.com - it costs $89, but it is a tool everyone should have around in my opinion.

    Keep in mind that new drives are cheap. a 2 TB hdd will run you about as much as SpinRite. But getting a new drive will NOT recover your data of course. So if that data is important to you, see if you can recover it with SpinRite, the team over at GRC is awesome when it comes to support as well.

I want to format my transcend from mac how can i do it


Transcend produces different kinds of memory modules, including Random Access Memory, or RAM, chips for computer systems, USB flash drives and a variety of flash memory card formats, such as SD.


Transcend's flash memory devices are usually preformatted with either FAT32 or NTFS. Macintosh systems primarily use the HFS+ file system format.


You can format a Transcend flash memory card to the FAT format using the Disk Utility program on a Macintosh.


Insert the Transcend flash card into a card reader connected to the Mac.

Some Macintosh computers have SD card readers built in.


Open the Disk Utility program in the Utilities folder.


Click the flash card in the left column of the window.


Click the "Erase" tab.


Click "MS-DOS (FAT)" in the "Format" drop-down list.


Enter a name for the flash card in the "Name" box.


Click "Erase" to format the flash memory card to FAT.


Hope this helps

I just purchased a StoreJet 2M 320 GB drive. I would like to format it for use with my iMac. The MAC software doesn't seem to have a solution. How do I format the drive?


When the flash memoryUSB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restoreit by reformatting it using a computer with Windows OS. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - AdministrativeTools - Computer Management - Disk Management. Then right click on Disk 1removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted itwill indicate that it is Healthy. You need to format the flash or external drive. Format thedrive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchangedbetween MACs and PCs also between XP/Vista and earlier versions of Windows).

My mac is reading my transcend storejet 25 mobile 320gb, but i cant copy files from my mac unto it


Hello Kinoshia,

It seems that Transcend external hard drive have different file system. This is because the Mac machine is not able to transfer the files on to external hard drive. Please format the Transcend external hard drive from Mac machine and then hard drive is ready to accept the data from Mac machine. The drive either has to be formatted for Mac( HFS & HFS+) or FAT32 partitions. If you want to use
Transcend external hard drive for both Windows and Macs than format the drive to be FAT32.

My Transcend StoreJet 500GB harddisk is not being detected on my Mac. The blue light keeps flashing.


If you are using the USB "Y" cable that has two male ends on one side then ditch it and try a regular usb cable. Regular being a cable that is USB to USB mini, one that as short as possible e.g. 36 inches or less. This solution is what solved my problem, so simple :)

My borrowed transcend storejet 320GB would not open to my DELL INSPIRON 1440. the light indicator is not steady.


the usb ports on your laptop may have insufficient power to operate the drive, you could try a double usb cable, it has a mini usb at one end and two normal usb at the other, so it shares the power from two ports.
